Research and Experiments in English Teaching.
Donelson, Kenneth L., Ed.
Arizona English Bulletin, v12 n3 p1-55 Apr 1970
The five studies reported in this journal were undertaken by classroom English teachers to encourage teachers to conduct and read educational research, and to generate curiosity about recent research in the teaching of English. Articles are (1) "Can Teachers Ignore Mechanical Errors in Composition?"; (2) "What Do Freshmen and Sophomores Like to Read?"; (3) "The Writer's Audience: What Is Its Effect on Quality of Student Composition?"; (4) "What Is the Relationship between the Amount of Reading and the Quality of Writing by Tenth Grade Boys?"; and (5) "Does Student Revision of Composition Really Pay Off?". A concluding discussion, on whether English teachers can conduct research, reviews experiments in language, composition, literature, and English teacher performance. Included is a bibliography of articles and books on research and experiments in English teaching. (JMC)
